Mr. Xaver Scharwenka gave us our last Artist Recital of this year, Monday evening, February 6. He presented a very interesting program, one which gave adequate scope for his display of versatile and intelligent musical art. The fact that he brought his own piano was very characteristic of his playing; it had the independence and mas- tery of possession. His first big Chopin number had exceed- ingly great difficulties of technique — per- haps the greatest of any piece written for the piano — and the player executed it with a masterful, firm touch, brought a great depth of tone out of it, and achieved fine rhetorical effects. It was essentially exciting, and made a very impressive opening number. The following Liszt selections obtruded their technique upon us. Mr. Scharwenka's runs had a ravishing daintiness, ease and clearness, and in the "Ricordanza" they gave a character almost childlike to the lightness and sweetness of the piece, so that its mean- ing and message was poignantly felt. Im- agination was powerfully present again in the " Mephisto Valse," which was very mys- terious. The various moods were well chained together and strikingly contrasted, and the suspense was managed dramatically. The player showed himself capable in this number to capture that elusive thing, "at- mosnhere." The character of this piece demands something more than ''legitimate piano playing" to make it interesting, and the recurring weird melody wrung all its meaning out of the pure tone and impressionistic thunderous effects of the artist. The surprise in ending with the final twist to a different key was managed with a finish and precision that was very moving. A Chopin nocturne followed as an encore, and here Mr. Scharwenka's dignity and graciousness in giving encores deserves tribute. The imaginative element was in such prominence in the rendition of this selection as to make the effect almost dream- like. Always pianistically conceived, the voices were like singing, the phrases com- pleted in a way that made the long, pleasing melodies subside, as it were, into effer- vescences. The nocturne character was definite and in perfect proportions. The long Beethoven sonata received an intelligent and appreciative execution, the quietness, the delicacy, and, above all, the essential bigness of the sonata being well interpreted. All the possibilities of tone and mood and feeling came out wonderfully, and one felt oneself stirred by the dignity and greatness of the work. This number was resting, following directly, as lid, upon the Liv/.f and Chopin selections. Mr. Scharwenka's own compositions were ' evidence of study before. His first, "Theme with Variations," was especially interesting, and showed great skill in composition. The two "Polish Dances" had a splendid folk-song individ- uality, and progressed with abandon and a lively charm. Two more encores followed, a " Waldstuck" of Schumann's, played with the dreaminess, and finish which leave no e of workman ,hip, and a Chopin " Walz" with exquisite articulation and spirit. Mr. irwenka is a iters faithfully, who allows nothing of,theirs to be hidden from him, and who does not obtrude his own style upon his interpretations to the extent of concealing, even slightly, their original meaning. His programme in full was as follows: Fantasie, Op. 49, F minor, Chopin Ricordanza, 1 T ■ t Mephisto Valse, J Sonata, Op. 57, F minor (appassionata), Beethoven Allegro assai Andante con moto Allegro ma non troppo Theme and Variations, ~| Op. 48, Novellette, Op. 22, Spanish Serenade, Op. 63, f Xaver Two Polish Dances, Op. Scharwenka 15- Op. 3, Staccato Etude, Op. 27. J GLEE CLUB CONCERT. On Friday and Saturday evenings, Feb- ruary 10 and 11, College Hall Chapel was filled with crowds of those who had come to hear the annual concert of the Glee and Mandolin Clubs. The entire program went with a snap that assured success, and both clubs responded unusually well to their leaders. The Glee Club began the concert with the singing of " 'Neath the Oaks" and "The Maiden and the Nightingale," whic u caught mcy of the audience from the start. The encore, "The Gap in the Hedge," was well received. The opening number of the Mandolin Club was a march, " Monstrat Viam." This went with a dash that evoked much ap- plause. The encore was a "Football Medley," arranged from football songs of Yale and Harvard. This proved so popular that it, too, was encored. Then the Glee Club sang the "Rose Waltz," whose beautiful melody was well brought out by the singing. For an encore there was a charming little "coon" song, "Pale Brown Lady Sue." The Mandolin Quartet followed. Mil- dred Wilson played first mandolin, Eleanor Hall, second mandolin, Alberta Peltz, man- dola and Carrie Longanecker, guitar. The first of the two numbers was a simple little lullaby, "Sleep, Little Baby of Mine," played very softly and dreamily. The second num- ber was "Wooden Shoes," which showed the real powers of the quartet to the bi vantage, as the time was exceedingly difficult for concerted playing. It was repeated as an encore. The popular "Shopgy Shoo" was sung next by the Glee Club, the musical setting of Paul Ambrose being the one used. This song never fails to win applause and the Clee Club 's sympathetic rendition won it more laurels. The second part of t his number was "The Tale of the Moon and the Star." It was one of i he best sung and catchiesl QUmbi rs the Clee Club has ever sung. The 1 ncore was "( ) I [earl 0' Mine." The concluding number of the first pari of the program was t he " Medl< y" Mandolin Club. Thi pari oi this, including "My Hero," was extre I] well 1 and ■•.■■J repea ted as an encore. The second pai 1 ■-! the co t began wi1 h t he "Topical Son-." v, nihil 1 In ■ . LI b Pursell and Sylvia Goulston, to the tune of "The Girl with the Brogue," from "The Arcadians." We rejoiced over the prospect of a Faculty with solitaires, over the information kindly given to Sophomores that "if they were dutiful they would be beautiful," and most especially were we com- forted by the reassurance that "we still have Tupelo." Harriet Coman sang the verses, and the Glee Club the chorus. The next of the Mandolin Club's numbers, "Salut d' Amour," showed the best work it did in the evening. The shading, with the usually sustained soft notes was exquisite and showed much careful preparation. The Glee Club followed with a duet and chorus, "The Miller's Wooing." Miss Goss and Miss Smart sang the solo parts. Both of the solo voices were clear and sweet, and the chorus was especially effective. The Mandolin Club's fourth number was "Water Lilies." It was a composition with attractive, rippling melody and unexpected louder parts. The encore was "La Zithera," which was played upon all the instruments after the manner of a harp and gave a per- fect imitation of the soft tinkle of a zither. The Glee Club's last number was an In- dian Serenade, which showed very good, united work. The next number was the quartet, composed of Miss Goss, Miss Co- man, Miss Goding and Miss Rugg. The first number was especially lovely, and the four voices blended exceedingly well. The second number was a rather weird song, "Far Off I Ileai a Lovci's Fiuie." TrfiS, too showed splendid work by all four members of the quartet. The Mandolin Club's concluding number was a rapid Spanish waltz, "Pepeeta." It was a brilliant concert piece and found much favor with the audience. The program was concluded by "Alma Mater," by the Glee and Mandolin Clubs. Program. Part One. I. (a) "'Neath the Oaks."

The News propounds the question to its readers with all seriousness, as one to be duly considered. Especially profitable is such meditation at this time of the year, when, with midyears — let us hope, safely, — behind you, you are plunging blindly into a new semester, your note-book filled with new, empty pages. Your mind also is conveniently cleared of all surplus knowledge of the past half year's work, and you are ready to assimilate all the new lectures and discussions which will soon almost swamp you with their conflict- ing ideas. At such a time, you perhaps insist, you consider that abstract meditation is not the wisest way in which to open a semester's work; the NEWS, however, hastens t o assure you that a few moments' considera- tion of tlie subject of Boredom will not greatly stand in the way of the A credits which you are planning for. Unless you are a very exceptional kind of a person- and you most probably arc not you are rather likely to have one of two prevailing tendencies in your relation- ships with those about you — you are either one who bores some, if not all, of your neigh- or, if you are clever enough not to bore them, you are bored by them. It may not be given you to choose between these attitudes for, if you bore your friends, .mi are doubtless happy in your ignorance. The refreshing side of you is that you have no idea that you are uttering bromidioms, DEVELOPING AND PRINTING PORTRAIT PHOTOGRAPHY RIRTHDAY AND WEDDING GIFTS IN TECO POTTERY, BRASS, PICTURES CIRCULATING LIBRARY RENTING DEPT.

You yourself are delightfully interested in what yem are saying, and it does not occur to you that some one else would make exactly the same remark under the same circum- stances. You are having a much more satisfactory experience than your bored, superior friend, and in the opinion of the editor, you are much more to be envied than she. For she — poor mortal — no matter how easy originality may be to her, has her reputation to uphold ; she must be witty — or, if not witty, she must at least escape the bromidia. She is bound, at certain times, to become self-conscious, and to consider the impression she is making, for she inevita- bly comes once in a while into contact with another before whom every scrap of her self-confidence vanishes, and she begins to wonder why she is so hopelessly uninterest- ing. She is continually on the alert to catch and comment on bromidic remarks of others ; she has become almost morbidly sensitive to them, and she is likely to construe the most harmless statements into glaring^bro- midioms. She looks on life from a vastly superior standpoint, and in reality narrows herself down to a pitifully small outlook, bounded by her own ideas — poor, or good, as the case may be — of the interesting and the stupid. She chooses her associates from this outlook — governs her choices and her actions from this outlook; she is decidedly in danger of becoming an insufferable egotist — all because she is bored. yJ * 'I'he person who bores, however, has the happy faculty of never being bored, and, because she demands less she is, on the whole, a more comfortable person to live with.

She finds pleasure, not only in people, but in situa- tions the most commonplace, at which her bored neighbor would high in excess of boredom She could say truly with Mr. J. R.

Results of the Suffrage Vote. The vol ing of Pebruai 5 1 on the que I ion oi equal uffragi re ulted in a 1 udenl vote of 850, of which 557 were opposed to the ex- tension of suffrage, 293 in favor of it. Of the 45 votes cast by the Faculty, 36 were in favor of it, 9 opposed. The classes voted as follows: 191 1 : Yes, 83. No, 103. 191 2: Yes, 66. No, 118. 1913: Yes, 59. No, 115. 1914: Yes, 67. No, 194. This adverse vote is attributed to lack of knowledge and indifference on the part of the majority of the student body. "It seems unlikely that such a vote would have occurred at Yassar, where the spirit seems uncommonly militant of recent years. One is usually told 'back East' of the pioneer flavor to the Wellesley traditions, of how the college stood out stoutly for am entire Faculty of women, for example, and other things equally impressive in the early days. But we fear that this vote on woman's suffrage scarcely reflects anything but the indiffer- ence to contemporary life of a lot of sheltered young women."

COLLEGE NOTES. The Revue Pedagogique, Paris, published, in its issue of De- cember 15, 1910, a twelve-page paper on "L'Enseignement du francais dans un College Americaine," written by Associate Pro- fessor Puthod, to be followed by another, in a subsequent number of that monthly, on the practical results achieved by students. On Tuesday evening, in the Physics Lecture Room, a meeting of the Science Club was held. Dr. McDowell gave an illustrated lecture on "Progress in Illumination." The Christian Association meeting in College Hall Chapel, last Thursday evening, was led by Persis Pursell; the leader in the village was Miss Merrill. Miss Helene Forest, Instructor in the Department of French, on February 4 addressed the Boston group of the New 7 England Modern Language Association on the "Training of Modern Lan- guage Teachers in French Universities for Home and Foreign Posts." NOTICES. On Saturday, February 18, at 7.30 o'clock, Miss Mabel Rob- inson of the Zoology Department will give a lecture on the common birds of Europe and Great Britain. The specimens will be selected from the birds in the museum of the Department of Zoology, and will be exhibited by means of the new Epidiascope in the Geology Lecture room. This lecture will be of special interest to those who have visited, or who contemplate visiting Europe, and all members of the college are cordially invited. An English lady, who is in charge of the children of the Mahara- jah of Kolhapur, India, wishes an American young woman as a com- panion in this work. The prescribed duties of this person would consist mainly of piano lessons for one of the children. Anyone who should take the place would be expected to pay her traveling ex- penses to India and return, but she would lie at no expense for living, and she would have a compensation of about thirteen dollars a month. It must be evident that the position affords rare opportu- nity for becoming acquainted with an interesting country and a novel phase of life. Anyone interested is asked to address or see Miss Caswell, 130 College Hall, who has a letter giving further de- tails regarding the position. AT THE THEATERS.

A Plea for the Study of Elocution and a Brief Statement of the Courses Wellesley College Offers. It cannot be a new fact 1 anyone t hat Europeans and returning Americans all criticize severely the speech of American women. Our latest critic of note, Henry James, accuses us of com- plaisance and a very general objection to all criticism as an infringe- ment on our independence. We can make our wants known, we can communic.v Whai matter the how? Jami "Then an violations which, from the m< >men1 educated, as capable of a social part, the 'European' woman is mad< to pa} for; and 6rs1 among these, it may be aid, i that of the unwritten law, that a lady shall speak as a lady.

CORRECT HOODS FOR ALL DEGREES Illustrated Bulletin and Samples on request degree of mastery of the habit of employing their vocal organs after the fashion of good society." There was an amusing, but a sad article a year ago in the Boston Transcript by a Bostonian who was slowly becoming aware of the vocal peculiarities of her country-women: "At the end of the year and a half I emerged from my Italian surroundings and began the usual tour across Europe, constantly meeting and talking with Americans. The shock was indescrib- able. The first day of my journey I occupied the compartment of the railway carriage with four delightful young ladies from various states. Every time any one of them spoke I winced I do not expect anyone to believe my description of it." I think that there is no sensitive woman who has traveled who has not had the same or worse experience. I remember a party of American girls taking possession of a pension in Edinburgh and my sensitiveness to the deserved criticism on their speech. Sad to say all American voices under the stress of excitement are recognized. Oliver Wendell Holmes, years ago, spoke feelingly on the same subject. Must the criticism be forever smilingly accepted, or is it the duty of every intelligent woman to wake to the fact that some- thing can be done about it? ( )ne of the superintendents of the New York public schools said that he would never employ a teacher without seeing her; and that, no matter how perfect her equipment for teaching, if she had a dis- agreeable voice and lack of presence, on no condition would he en- gage her. Is he not right? He would not have another generation by imitation follow such an example. Lately an Englishwoman addressed the Wellesley Faculty and made everyone who heard her realize the beauty of the English language as strongly as the beauty of her thought. "Her voice was music," and her clear, crisp enunciation a real mental satisfaction. Why not? Those beautiful words have come way down through the ages to us. My theme was to be not altogether the need of elocution, but also what the college has to offer. All that has been said is timely if the student can be made to realize that voice-training is the essential point in all the work. The wrong attitude in college, in fact, out of college, too, is that elocution should be the study of those who have talent for it. Far from it! It should, above all, be the study of those deficient in vocal power. We all, too, need to remember that it takes patience and time to combat the faults fostered from childhood. Many a one of us really "speaks as a child," trying, in a child's voice, to record the experience of the woman. To overcome all this, demands of the student openness to criticism and faithful concentrated practice on technique. Voice work is like five-finger exercises in music, to which even genius is not superior. In our American zeal to get on, we forget this fact. It is encouraging to know thai every voice can be improved. More students should elect the work because of their great need oi the training. Course I lias for its object I lie training in position and bre;i th- ing essentials for voice production, indeed, for health and appear- ance; also training in articulation necessary to all human inter- course, and the simple, direct speaking of good literature. The small divisions in voice work under Miss Drouet make it possible to approach individual attention in these respects. Elocution II, in addition to the continuance of the aims of Elocution I remember, "art is long"— adds the development of bodily freedom and the appreciation and expression of the higher forms of literal ure. Elocution 111 is a course in the interpretation of Shakespeare. I In re are many appr< ache i to so greal an au1 hor, one surely being an attempl to express vocally the thoughl and emotion of the writer. The plays were writ ten for speech. In utterance one be- comes coi i oi the power and felicity of diction. The charac- too, begin to come out of the pages and live for us. We find thai in daily life they thoughl and felt much as we should. When we find common ground with them, what delight to strive for their higher mood i! There cannot be too much said OH tin- value of really knowing by rote and "by heart" such living literature. COLLEGE NEW ForKdipt ^^ TRADE MARK JL (Chocolates Are DIFFERENT!

It is hard for the students to understand the exact necessity of there being a full day of recitations on the Tuesday of the first week of examinations. In spite of the "holiday atmosphere," midyears is, for most people, a decidedly strenuous period; it is easy to talk against "cramming," yet, when a semester's work has to be reviewed in a day, cramming is inevitable. It is often impossible to gain time for review before midyears begin, and when an examination comes on Wednesday, following a day of six recitations on Tuesday, it is a severe tax on almost any student, for few of us, no matter how thoroughly we have kept up in our work, feel able to take our examinations without a fairly systematic study of each course. Of course the case mentioned is an extreme one; yet nearly every- one has a few days of hard, concentrated work, either at the begin- ning or end of the two weeks. And to have Tuesday free would be of inestimable value. It does not seem to the writer that the value gained from one more day's recitations could outweigh the time used for preparation. 191 2. U. Is there any reason why the weekly meeting of the Christian Association on Thursday nights cannot be held in Billings Hall instead of in College Hall Chapel? Many of us in the east end of College Hall, for whom Friday is a full day, find it impossible to attend every meeting, and yet our studies are disturbed for over half an hour by the constant stream of people going in and out, the slamming of the door and the intermittent singing. Especially during midyears it has proved distracting and annoying. It is frequently said that we should all attend meetings, but none of us are given back this half hour's time to prepare for our work, nor are our assignments lessened by half an hour because it is Thursday. Unless there is some special objection to be urged against it, I should think that the transference of the meeting to Billings Hall would be a simple solution of the difficulty and prove satisfactory to all of us. 1011. HI. Now that examinal ion , are over, and before we quite (.itch our l> again, let, ns review the last two week:, and decide that, after all, they are not half bad. Our brains throbbed and we worked rapidly and discovered that, we were capable of undreamed of powers of application. The more we crammed, the more we were capable of cramming. Our brains grew clearer and we realized our greater capabilities of concentration. Those vagu< and Loosely- connected hundreds of odd facts were assorted and given their real place; we found out the purpose and careful outline of thosi courses which, through the semester, had existed in the form of The Oriental Store.

The fact is that mid- years has given us a grasp of ourselves and a grasp of our work as well as a relief from the routine of classes. Have we, then, well- founded reasons for groaning over midyears? And would it not be well, when the time arrives next year, to welcome it as a time of real effort and valuable endeavor rather than an interval of unmerited pain and anguish? PARLIAMENT OF FOOLS. Two weeks are past, two fatal weeks, the worst that now shall be, Is that I can soon unite with my beloved family. I crammed on Bible and on Lit., with fifty dates apiece, Recited Latin poems till my friends begged me to cease; I argued lucidly each day, defined "a fallacy," And painfully described a "leaf" for dearest Botany. But oh! in Lit. we didn't have a solitary date; In Latin we had reams of "sight" — oh, what will lie my fate.-' But there's one great consolation that sustains me to t he last,— If they'd asked me something that I knew, L think I might have passed.

All members of the college interested in birds, especially if planning a trip abroad this summer, will find it worth while to ex- amine the case of birds of Western Europe, chiefly from France, derived from the Babcock collection, which have recently been transferred to individual stands and relabeled. This case will be found on the north side of the fourth floor center. The collection consists of one hundred and one specimens, repre- senting fifty-seven species. Some of these are so similar to our American species as to seem almost like replicas, e. g., the Swallow (cf. Barn-swallow), as might be expected in birds from the same great faunal realm (Holarctic region) ; while others present interest- ing differences. The Redbreast is the "Robin Redbreast" of literature, quite different from ours, while the Blackbird is a thrush and shows its kinship with our American robin. The Kingfisher is much smaller and more vividly colored than ours. Bright colors are in evidence also on the Goldfinch, Bullfinch, Titmouse and Green Woodpecker. The Jay is a very giant comparatively, and the Cuckoo is a large, hawklike creature (cf. the Sparrowhawk), whence the old saying that cuckoos became transformed into hawks in winter. The Hoopoe with its striking crest; the Wryneck, a relative of the woodpeckers; and the graceful Wagtails, belong to groups not represented in this country; and the Warblers are quite unrelated to our American warblers, being members of the thrush family.
